For example here (in Arabic) an extreme fatwa where the scholar seems to allow ...

There are no prescribed limits for the engagement period. It is a matter of customs and tradition, i.e., 'urf (Arabic: عرف). This varies by place, time, and people involved.

Yes, it is permissible for Muslims to perform acts of oral sex with their spouses. Licking or sucking the spouse's sexual organs are permissible, as long as it gives a person sexual satisfaction which will keep him/her away from Haram acts or starring at non-Mahram men/women.

The scholars of Islam differed on this matter. ...

First of all, the default in Islam is that anything that is not forbidden is allowed. I am scratching my head on this one. I am a little alarmed that you are panicking about being a sinner because your husband touches you. I am frankly perplexed by the question. Rest assured, there is nothing for you to repent from. And second, please keep in mind that ...

The wife CANNOT BE FORCED to pay a penny. It's totally a man's duty.
